In addition to the basic needs of food, water, and a place to go to the bathroom, Swedens first cat psychologist Susanne Hellman Holmstrm has outlined 10 other necessities that cats need in order to be happy: scratching, cleaning its fur, hiding, looking after its territory, playing, sleeping, hunting, spying, discovering, and social connection. That list can be difficult to achieve for some indoor cats as many people are living in smaller spaces. In order to combat that problem, Hellman Holmstrm collaborated with interior designer Eleonor Moschevitz to create The Cat Flat for 24Storage. The Cat Flat is designed for you on the outside, appearing to be a wooden storage cabinet that many would have in their living room, but on the inside, well, thats all for the cats.
The Cat Flat is made from walnut veneer with doors that have vertical and horizontal slats that give the piece character while giving you a shadowy peek of your frolicking felines. Standing at three levels, the cabinet lets felines go wild with the freedom to move throughout the layers and play with the various scratchers and toys.
